I Need Some Creative Minds....

This morning my daughter let me know that next Wednesday at school is the 100th day. That means that the kids (and obviously, their parents) need to get creative. The kids need to go to school wearing 100 things. It can be anything, to an extend of course.

Last year I only had less than a day to come up with something and this is what I came up with:

This picture above shows that she has tons of bracelets, necklaces and colorful rubber bands in her hair (see another view below). She also has, which you can't see, stickers all over her clothes. Yes everyone, this is how I got creative. Lame, right?! OK, cut me some slack here. Remember, I had less than a day to come up with something. In fact, as I type this, I'm thinking I only had the morning. So considering, I think I did alright!
So, this is what I'm going to ask of you guys, my bloggy friends! I have a week to come up with something better and more creative and since I have read many of you are very creative individuals, I would like to get some creative minds out there thinking and get some advice. I've already started thinking myself but it's too early right now and all I keep going back to is what was done last year. See, my mind isn't thinking clearly right now. :o)

So, what do you think I should do for this year's 100th day?


Now, onto a different subject. I just had to share this. Remember I mentioned here and here and here that I basically blog way too much?! In fact, this morning my hubby and I had this conversation:

Hubby: I hope you clean the house today. I don't want your friend coming over when the house is messy.

Me: Julie's not coming over today. I'm gonna try and get her over here on Thursday. And if I clean the house today, I don't want you coming home and spending all of 5 minutes messing it up.

Hubby: I don't do that.

Daughter: Yes you do!

Me: Yesterday you had 2 shirts lying around on the chair and your socks on the floor.

Hubby: I wouldn't do that if the house was clean (looking away with a smirk, starting to laugh).

Me: Oh, that is a bunch of bull!! Huh Sabrina?!

Daughter: Yeah Daddy! You always leave your shirts all over.

Me: Yeah, I don't know what it is lately though. I've been in this Funk with the house.

Hubby: Yeah, it's called a Bloggers Funk!

Me: Oh yeah, I'm gonna blog about that!! LOL


Ok, I'm off to get ready now. Gonna get my hair cut today. I'm going to my friend's hair girl, so wish me luck! It's been about 2 years since I got my hair cut and my hair girl, well...dissappeared. The salon shut down and since I waited too long to go back, I don't know where she went. So, back to square one. I hate this part. When I was younger, some lady messed my hair up bad so I have a hard time trusting people with my hair. My girlfiend's hair is super cute and stylish so I thought I would give her a chance. I'll let you know how it turns out.

So, here's me before with all my layers grown out:

You could get a roll of ribbon and she could write stuff she likes on it and then cut them up and pin them to her clothes.

She is so cute and what a fun school to do this!

Denise said...

What a fun idea - and honestly...you did a GREAT job last year - WAY more creative than I would have been! :)

And I can't wait to see what your haircut turns out like! I can't wait to get mine done tomorrow! It's been a longggggggggggg time! Not 2 years long but probably about 1!

Losing a good hairsylist is akin to losing a member of your family. I still haven't fully recovered from mine moving away. Because of it, I have also not cut my hair in about a year. Definitely let us know how the cut goes because I might be giving your girl a call too.

As for the dilemma over Sabrina's 100 items, here are my suggestions:

1. Socks
2. Underwear

Let me know how she feels about these! :)

This is a tough one. I would go with the ribbons.

Also I love your hair. Don't cut too much.

Looking forward to se visiting with you again.....someday.... :o)
